7:01 am
and good morning, everyone. george is still on a little break. and we're delighted to have david muir back with us. >> great week with you, robin. >> we're enjoying it. and we're also glad to have the shuttle back on solid ground. applause breaking out at mission control. the crew is off the shuttle in cape canaveral. >> robin, as you know, they're returning home after that 13-day mission, the 135th shuttle journey. and of course, this morning we mark the final one for the program that began more than 30 years ago. the end of an era. and we'll have more on the milestone in just a moment. when they get off that shuttle, it's hot down here. >> scorching temperatures all across the country. sam outside here in times square. already almost 80 degrees, sam? >> yeah. robin, when you hear the temperatures, you think it's just summertime. it's 79 degrees in times square right now.
7:02 am
but the humidity is 87%, which is like a steam room. the duration is just as impressive as temperatures. we've got 18 days in ray row in dallas at or above 100 degrees. and the warmest july in 34 years in chicago. today's headline, add more people to the big heat. emergency rooms are at 100% capacity in cincinnati, ohio. roads in louisiana are buckling under heat stress. livestock is dying in record dakota. in minnesota and south >> it's bad. it's terrible. >> reporter: and the hottest heat wave in the midwest in 23 years is moving east. nearly half of the entire u.s. population, 141 million americans across two dozen states, now are under heat advisories. it's one-two punun of record heat combined with unbearable humidity. the country's highest heat index, 126 in council bluffs, iowa. heat like this is now taxing the power grid leads to thousands of power outages in the midwest. that means no air conditioner. >> the lower level of the house
7:03 am
is a little bit cooler. i try not to go upstairs. >> reporter: and tension is rising. power crews were forced to leave this chicago street after being harassed by an angry neighbor. the food supply is feeling the stress, too. terry swales of abc affiliate wqad is in iowa. >> here in the quad cities, the heat and humidity has really been stressing the crops, especially the corn. and farmers are very concerned it's going to cut into their yields. >> reporter: even the skies aren't friendly in this heat. abc's barbara pinto was in chicago. >> it's so hot here at chicago o'hare, that they've banned pets from flying in the cargo holds in planes. and it's dangerous and potentially deadly. only animals small enough to fit under the seat, like max here, are able to fly. >> reporter: the bigger you are, the bigger the problem. even zoo animals are being hosed down. yesterday on "gm we showedou the heat dome thats blocking this heat and feeds on itself. and that dome opens up and flies east. so, now,ome of theation's biggest population sections from d.c. through phillinto new
7:04 am
york and into boston now feel the heat that most of the nation has already been feeling for a long time. robin? >> i'm going to take it, sam. thanks. another tough day ahead. and we wanted to take a closer look at how extreme temperatures and humidity affect our bodies. it's almost immediate how our bodies try to fight back and keep cool. and dr. richard besser puts this to the test with us. >> hey, david. you know, the biggest rule in extreme heat is to keep drinking water. we all know that. you're losing so much of it at temperatures like this. but it's something you don't always think about. but when you actctlly see how much water you can lose, as we did yesterday, it's alarming. we went to crunch gym to show you the effects of heat and humidity on your body by sitting in a steam room. my weight before the steam, 197.6 pounds. i also take my pulse. 72 beats per minute. i'm going into the steam room with this device.. it's going to tell me both the temperature and humidity. when you put those numbers together it gives you the heat index. that tells you how dangerous it is outside and how much water
7:05 am
your body is going to lose during the heat wave. the steam is so intense, our camera won't even work inside. it only takes a few minutes to have an effect on my body. my pulse is now 128. that's one of the first things to go up when you get too hot. in extreme heat, your heart starts pumping faster, to try to dump sweat and heat into the air. my pulse up, 56 beats. of course, this room is deliberately intense, with the heat index of over 170. and you stay in just 20 minutes. that may seem high. but in minnesota they recorded heat index is over 130. after 20 minutes we do another weigh-in. this time i'm 196.2 pounds. i lost a pound and a half of water in 20 minutes just sitting. take chicago, where the heat index was 112. abc's matt gutman tested some runners. measuring their pulses and weight. before they set off on a two-mile run. >> good luck. >> reporter: when they finished matt found both runners lost
7:06 am
about a pound of water each. and their heart rates more than doubled. >> my body feels like it's on fire. and rich is back. interesting to see how much water you lost and how quickly you sweat it out. always important to point out. i wanted to ask you about two of the things you tell me are less obvious. when you stop sweating in this heat. >> you know, what your body is doing when it's sweat something releasing heat into the air. and that's so important to regulating your body. but when you s sp sweating that is saying you've lost so much that your body is trying to and it's pulling back.ssure. and your body can overheat in juststinutes doing that, to a deadly level. >> it's so important we keep our eyes on our neighbors and people most vulnerable in the heat. you were saying when someone looks pale, most look red. that's a warning sign, too. >> instead of sending blood to your skin to release heat, it's clamping down to maintain blood pressure. and that person needs treatment right away. >> all right. rich besser, thanks so much. >> plenty of water. >> drink, drink, drink. >> all right, rich. guys. now, a new terror warning. thousands of our most critical facilities including nuclear power plants on alert.
7:07 am
after u.s. officials say some may have already been penetrated by potential terrorists trying to pull an inside job. abc's brian ross broke the story of this new warning which comes just weeks before the 9/11 anniversary. good morning, brian. >> that's right, robin. good morning to you. this latest intelligence report focuses on concerns that terrorists are trying to gain recruits inside major u.s. utilities. hundreds of chemical plants, oil refineries and power plants in this country provide a tempting target for terrorists, especially if an insider helps. >> there are a lot of very sensitive facilities where someone can get a job on the inside. can get access to a control room, flip a switch, which causes an elececic power grid to short-circuit, causes a pipeline to explode. >> reporter: the homeland security intelligence report issued this week, insider threat to utilities, warns that violent extremists have, in fact, obtained insider positions. >> if someone were determined
7:08 am
and had the right access, the amount of damage that they could inflict could affect thousands of lives. >> reporter: the u.s. was stunned last year after the arrest in yemen of an alleged american recruit to al qaeda, sharif mobley of new jersey, who, it turned out had been employed at five different nuclear power plants in and around pennsylvania, able to pass federal background checks. >> many of these al qaeda sympathizers can pass background checks because there's nothing on file anywhere that says they're an al qaeda sympathizer living here in the united states. >> reporter: documents found in the compound of osama bin laden show he was pushing for a major attack in the u.s. to match the scale of 9/11. and al qaeda has already put the word out for recruits. in its online magazine called "inspire" looking for brothers of ours who have specialized expertise and those who work in sensitive locations. the department of homeland security says it has no specific, credible threats for
7:09 am
any one utility. but that operators should understand their employees, especially disgruntled ones, may be targeted for recruitment as saboteurs. robin? >> hard to believe we're coming up on the ten-year anniversary. >> a lot of concern about what might happen between now and then. >> that's true. thanks, brian. >> thanks, robin. turning ow to politics. good news for president obama this morning. a new abc news poll, even in this economy, the president appearing stronger heading into the 2012 race than he was just a few weeks ago. we want to bring in jon karl to help weigh in on these numbers. jon, we were talking earlier on the surface it seems like a few points shift here. but given the backdrop of this economy and unemployment this is fairly dramatic. >> reporter: is pretty dramatic. and the factor seems to be the debt ceiling standoff. take a look at the numbers against mitt romney, the president has opened up a lead, a pretty significant lead you see there of 51% to 44%. the lead is even more dramatic against other other candidates. look where he was a month ago, david. mitt romney was tied with
7:10 am
president obama. the big factor here, in fact, the only factor that has really changed is that independent voters have moved away from the republicans and towards the president. >> so, independent voters watching the debt showdown and weighing in. >> reporter:s that's exactly right. and don't like the way the republicans have been handling it. >> speaking of the republicans, you take a look at how they're stacking up with the race. and a familiar name starting to inch up. >> reporter: so, romney is still the front-runner if you look at the republican field. but look who is number two, not even a candidate at this point. sarah palin. she had dropped. now, she is back up. sarah -- you see michele bachmann at 12%. no other candidate in double digits. so, sarah palin. we still don't know if she's going to run. but as you know, she did say she will make a decision probably >> so, that debate over the debt ceiling continues to drive these numbers as you point out, jon. let's throw up the clock. now 11 days and counting until that deadline. bring us up to speed quickly, if you will, on where
7:11 am
this stands this morning. >> reporter: late meeting last night at the white house. i expect another meeting today. but still, i can tell you no visible signs of progress on this. >> jon karl at the white house there behind the details. we know what they are dealing with today. jon, thanks so much. robin? >> all right, david. so many families along the atlantic coast worried today after a shark attack in shallow waters. a 6-year-old girl is recovering after a shark bit her on the foot and leg while she was playing close to shore. abc's steve osunsami is in topsail beach, north carolina, with the latest on that, good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, robin. that little girl was a little thing playing in water that was this high. just 18 inches. surprisingly high enough for a shark attack. the 6-year-old girl was floating ononer boogie board. had no idea what was lurking in the water just 18 inches below. the shark came from behind, grabbed on to her right leg and wouldn't let go. her mother, watching a few away,
7:12 am
started screaming. >> mother yelled that the child had been apparently bit by a -- what appeared to be a shark. >> reporter: she was air lifted to a hospital two hours away. this morning, her family is grateful she is alive and in good condition. here on the carolina coast, this is the fifth shark attack on a young swimmer since last summer. 13-year-old carlin swence needed 60 stitches. >> i felt like something grabbed my foot. but then, it got really sharp. and it wasn't letting go. >> reporter: kendall parker nearly lost her hand and wrist. >> i thought it was my dad just joking around. i pulled it up and it was gushing blood. >> reporter: cassidy cartwright three weeks ago. >> it hurt. and i thought it was somebody was messing around. >> when they pulled the her out of the water, it was wide-open and a lot of blood. >> the population of sharks increases during the summer. so, the chances that interaction increases definitely at this time of year. >> reporter: the experts warn most shark attacks happen in the evening or before dawn. when sharks like the one you're seeing here, all the way up on
7:13 am
the beach, come to the shoreline to feed. >> we know to be a fact that sharks do feed closer to shore late in the afternoon, evenings, and early, early mornings. >> reporter: the experts also say you should swim in groups because sharks, like most predators, tend to go after victims that are alone. they also say swimmers should get out of the water when they're surrounded by schools of no need to be surrounded by what should be shark food. robin? >> all right, there, steve. thank you very much. something dr. richard besser told us a while ago, don't wear jewelry. it's shiny and may attract attention. >> did you see how low water was? at steve's leg. >> i know. >> very surprising. for other developing stories say good morning to josh elliott. >> good morning, david, robin and all of you. we begin with history. this morning at cape canaveral where space shuttle "atlantis" and its four-person crew touched down just before 6:00 a.m. eastern, bringing to an end
7:14 am
nasa's shuttle program. and with this single chapter in american history. and abc's lisa stark was among the record crowd there. good morning to you, lisa. >> reporter: good morning, josh. it truly was a picture-perfect landing, as "atlantis" came down. a few thousand people, invited guests only, many who had devoted years of their life to the runway applauded here as the shuttle landed. it's really so bittersweet as they were watching the end of an era. and in fact, nasa will put a permanent mark on the runway where "atlantis" touched down as a testament to the 30 years of space shuttle flight. >> and the three orbiters and a prototype will now become museum pieces on display around the country. but the bad economy has touched even nasa. so, what is next for the organization? >> reporter: absolutely. a lot of pride today. a lot of handshakes and cheers. but tomorrow reality really sets in. 4,000 pink slips go out tomorrow to nasa employees here at the kennedy space center.
7:15 am
they will be looking for new jobs as the space shuttle program winds down. the nasa administrator today insisting america will rededicate itself to getting humans back in space, to launching them again. but when that's going to happen and exactly how, that's a little murky right now. >> the questions to be answered. abc's lisa stark at cape canaveral. thank you for that. and well, it's not just nasa. a new report finds layoffs across the country are increasing at the fastest rate in nearly a year. "the wall street journal" says the companies are growing more worried about the lack of collective economic growth. and wells fargo bank has agreed to pay a record fine, $85 million, to settle mortgage fraud claims, including accusations that the bank falsified documents and pushed borrowers into higher interest loans. also, this morning, the state of texas has executed an inmate who claimed he killed a convenience store clerk and another man in revenge for the 9/11 attacks because he thought his victims were middle eastern.
7:16 am
a third victim who survived the attack actually tried to stop the execution, saying his muslim faith told him to forgive. finally a terrifying scene playing out as a leopard goes on the attack. the big cat leaping over a wall as you saw there before terrorizing a village in eastern india. it mauled 11 people. and at one point, as you can see there, pounced on a man's back. eventually the locals were able to beat it back with knives and sticks and stones. we see those photos. remarkably, though, dave and robin, no one was seriously injured. >> saw the jaws open as he was on that man's back. >> it is a common problem as those villagers push deeper and deeper into what was forest. >> into their land. all right, josh. thank you. let's get back outside. another check -- >> with the only man that looks cool. no sweat.
7:17 am
it's sam. >> good morning, robin, david, josh. let's get to the boards. we have a lot to talk about with this heat. there are now 32 states under heat watches or warnings or advisories. it has spread into the mid-atlantic and the northeast. large population centers that may or may not be ready to handle this kind of heat. and forget it. it's the heat and the humidity now. your index level, 113, 112 in raleigh. and, yes, dallas, you're used to it. it feels like 111 today. here's a look at the big board. but the big deal is the heat.
7:18 am
it is already warm and steamy for most of us. so, do what you have to do ear today. david? >> great advice, sam. we'll see you here shortly. it's the morning of dramatic rescues. this is one at the most famous falls. a woman falls into the whirlpool rapids while walking with her
7:19 am
fiance. and what happened next was nothing short of a miracle. here's abc's jim sciutto now. >> reporter: lindsay burgess was hiking near one of the world's most powerful waterfalls until she tried to get closer to the water. too close. >> i wanted to touch the beauty. >> reporter: just moments after this video was taken, those churning waters behind her sucked her in. >> it's almost like somebody pulled me in because i remember one leg just sliding down. >> reporter: how powerful? ten-times more powerful than the legendary rapids that carve the grand canyon. >> it feels like a tornado underneath the water. >> reporter: evening worse, nothing and no one floats. not even with a life jacket. its downward pull just too strong. her only potential rescuers, passengers and crew of the sightseeing whirlpool jet boat. >> i went immediately to where she was. she was being held by the current. >> reporter: for her fiance,
7:20 am
rich, watching helplessly on shore it was sheer terror. >> i felt like, you know, i love her so much. and just to have her ripped out of my life, you know, like that and i was horrified. >> reporter: it's a story with this happy ending. >> i'll be thinking about you guys every day for the rest of my life. >> reporter: that almost never came to be. last night, we were there when we got to meet the captain for the first time. a heartfelt thank you and a second chance at life. >> you gave me everything, you know. >> reporter: for "good morning america," jim sciutto, abc news, washington. >> wow. if they can survive that, they'll have a great marriage. >> yes, they will, david. coming up, what really happened inside this multimillionaire's mansion? his girlfriend and young son dying within days of the each other. new details about their relationship. yesterday morning here, we told you about the young sister act, no longer singing songs about hate. they saw that story and weighed in afterwards. the exclusive interview this morning. whwhthey say they're being

7:32 am
the last place you'd expect 15 detectives working overtime, trying to figure out exactly what happened in the mansion behind me. behind the walls of this landmark 27-room mansion, 2 mysterious deaths in less than a week. 6-year-old max shacknai died just a week after falling from the mansion's master staircase. 32-year-old rebecca zahau found days after max's fall, hanging from a noose from the second-floor balcony, unclothed. her limbs bound with what appeared to be electrical cord. both lived in the home o oed by jonas shacknai, the wealthy ceo of medicis pharmaceutical. max, his son, rebecca his live-in girlfriend. adding to the mystery, police say shacknai was not home during either incident. zahau's body was discovered by his brother, adam. >> suicide and homicide can look similar. that's why it's so important to
7:33 am
pay attention to the details. >> reporter: this morning, abc news is learning new details about the relationship between the two victims and shacknai. sources say zahau and shacknai dated for nearly three years and had a happy and loving relationship. >> she was the sweetest girl you could possibly imagine. >> reporter: her trainer said that zahau often brought the 6-year-old to the gym. >> she was always smiling with him. and they had a really good relationship. >> reporter: shacknai had been married twice before. his last marriage to max's mother, dina shacknai, ended in divorce with accusations of verbal and physical assault. in these photos obtained by abc news you can see scratches on her shoulder and cuts on her arm and knees. she told police she was attacked by shacknai's german shepherd. in a police report she said she feared her husband and wrote "she was scared of what he's capable of doing to me physically and the lengths he would go to try to destroy me." shacknai denied that to police, saying dina filed false and
7:34 am
misleading reports. and they offered a joint statement saying, quote, while our marriage did not work out as either of us had hoped it did produce a wonderful son max whom both of us loved very much. his loss is unimaginable. zahau's sister tells abc news she had a conversation with rebecca the night before she died. they spoke off and on for about 4 1/2 hours. she says rebecca was going to go visit max in the hospital later the next day. and she insists, she still believes her sister did not kill herself. david? >> this story sad all the way around. that little smile on that little bobo max. we'll turn to those new detaililon twin sisters who first made h hdlines about singing about white supremacy. as we told you yesterday morning here on "gma," they're now teenagers who say they've changed their tune and embrace diversity. but after our report they had more to say. they spoke with abc's juju, who is here with us again today. good morning, juju.
7:35 am
>> good morning, david. i spent a solid heated hour on the phone with the gaede twins. and while they refused to go on camera they told me they spent years controlled by their mother and manipulated by the media. they say it's left them traumatized and misunderstood. five years after this shocking image first aired on abc news, the twins now say they were told to perform a nazi salute by a documentary crew. back then, the 12-year-old aspiring pop stars called themselves prussian blbl. ♪ >> reporter: and the twins say this newspaper headline is wrong. the now 19-year-olds insist they were never neo-nazis or skinheads, merely white separatists. but the blond-hair blue-eyed twins once served as the darlings of the white supremacist movement. >> we are proud of being white. we want to keep staying white. >> reporter: david duke, an outspoken racist and former ku klux klan grand wizard used them to draw a crowd.
7:36 am
>> lamb and lynx. >> reporter: but lynx says we didn't choose the venues. it was a job. and lamb says, i don't know what kind of authentic message a 12-year-old can send. i even believe santa existed. back then, their mother home-schooled them and was and still is committed to the power movement. >> if they were christians, they'd be singing maybe christian rock songs. but we're not. we're white nationalists. of course, that's a part of our life. >> reporter: but the girls told memever the years we received death threats. we saw dark sides on both sides of the issue. it caused us stress and sadness. that's why we pulled out, said lamb. we can't stand to be subjected to that anymore. their mother responded and say, you have i've got to remember they change their mind every five seconds. they're 19-year-old girls. and today, the only cause the girls say they advocate is medical marijuana. lynx says it saved her life
7:37 am
after a bout of cancer. lamb uses it for back pain and scoliosis. >> they say they're not white supremacists anymore. but they are white separatists. >> their mother is a white separatist. they say they love diversity and all cultures. asked them if they regretted ththsinging career. they said while they regret being associated with the aryan nation they don't regret the people they met. >> do they listen to their old music? >> they don't love it. they don't listen to folk, they said. they never controlled what music they would sing or what type. >> they don't even listen to their own stuff. to sam, still outside. is there sweat anywhere, sam? we were amazed at how cool you looked. >> i would think that comes under the tmi to share of information. so, i'll leave it right there. but let's deal with -- if we said good morning to everything who is warm at this point and a little too hot it would be most of the nation. but washington, d.c., 81, 82
7:38 am
degrees this morning but 85% of humidity. and wpvi, in philadelphia. it's the one station thahas dominant in philadelphia. it's 78 there but 90% humidity. you can see the haze in the hair. three-day heat wave continues today as the dome of high pressure opens up and gives you temperatures in the 90s. d.c. will go to 100. but it all of that toasty weather brought to you by thomas' english muffins. oh, robin? >> all right, sam. i know you were tempted to put on your flip-flops. but i see you don't have them on. >> wait. don't show. >> it's early.
